Personally Identifiable Information We Collect
Berntsen Chiropractic uses its website to provide general information and interactive services that we hope are relevant to visitors’ interests, concerns and personal health characteristics. We also use our website to allow patients, prospective patients and the public at large to communicate with our staff in an efficient, convenient manner. Some of the functions and features of our website inherently involve the exchange of some small amount of Personally Identifiable Information. Generally speaking, we will only use this information to communicate with you, deliver services, support our clinic’s business operations, and/or develop or enhance our own services.
As you use the Berntsen Chiropractic website, you will be given the option of using the site to communicate with our staff members. This communication may involve the exchange of Personally Identifiable Information, potentially including (but not limited to) your name and contact information.

Visitors to our website may be given the option of receiving recurring informational/promotional newsletters via email.

Newsletter subscribers may unsubscribe at any time by following the instructions included in each edition of the newsletter.
From time to time, Berntsen Chiropractic or contract service providers acting on the clinic’s behalf may conduct online research in order to gather feedback about our site and our practice’s broader performance. We may also conduct or commission online research about healthcare issues important to our patients and prospective patients. Such research may use a variety of techniques, including (but not limited to) email invitations, online surveys and virtual focus groups. Personally Identifiable Information collected through this type of research will be used exclusively by Berntsen Chiropractic and its contract service providers and will not be given or sold to any third party.
